There could be several reasons for the discomfort from using the Sleep Appliance…
The patient could be advanced to far which can cause pain. If this is the case the patients VDO may need to be increased. Also, is the patient wearing the AM positioned each evening Before the appliance placed in the mouth and also in the morning when the appliances removed. All three of the above could be a reason for the discomfort the patient may feel. Please let me know if I can help in any other way. Thank you
